Every day here at 195 Mare street we seem to be getting more and more productive. Our free shop is beginning to come together, shelves have been made and clothes have been sorted. We’re really short of hangers though so if anyone has them going spare, they would mean so much to us. We’ll be able to hang up all the clothes then. We’ve only got about 20 at the moment..
We’ve also made a lovely chill out area at the front of the building so anyone who comes in has somewhere cosy to hang out.
We’re got lots of people coming round every day to help out, but we welcome as many as possible to come and get stuck it. Now we’ve got the chill out space it’s so much more comfortable to get to work knowing you’ve got a place to sit down and have a cuppa tea.
Check out what the Hackney Citizen has to say about us in this week’s paper : )
We’re also keeping a look out to get some free first aid training for all community centre crew, so if you have any useful information or contacts, please get in touch.
